Despite its cold start, December has turned very warm and mild. It has been above freezing most of the time…and not a hint of snow. El Nino? Climate change? I am sure that in the grand scheme of things, this might not be such a good thing…but I am loving it!
But the squirrels have gotten most of the pumpkins.
Here is one now..feasting in the pumpkin patch.
They are doing a very thorough job!
Cluckingham Palace, of course, got stockings as well.
And I even managed to get a wreath for the door this year. Somehow that never happened last year. It would be more festive with a bit of snow, but I am ok with this.
Inside, I have been doing my usual greens….It is so bright and cheery after the browns of Autumn.
Though the stove is not lit. Too warm!
I am certain there will be plenty of cozy fires before winter is over…but not yet.
No fire in the fireplace yet either, but Fergus doesn’t mind.
More greens in the kitchen. The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms to decorate.
This is my version of an Irish dresser. Maybe in Ireland I will have a proper one.
…and the sink. Greens everywhere!
Even the bathroom got some. Why not?
The weather may be unseasonably warm…
….but Brookwood Shire is getting ready for Christmas! 🎄🎅🎁🔔
